This is why I wrote the mail. on my system just one of three resources
were imported into the new config and I was confused why the other two
resources refused to work after rebooting the system...

I can live with this situation, it's not a big deal. Maybe a warning
message in the GUI before replacing the original file would be
appropriate ?

I can understand that it's not easy to satisfy every situation and
little things like the different config can cause a lot of programming
effort for no additional benefit. Personally I prefer one file per
resource, but hey, we get a really *great* tool to manage clusters with
DMC and I really appreciate your work...if this is the way to go, I will
accept that decision.

Best Regards & a happy new year... :)
